A Look At What Eye See

Ricardo Tosto

Business / News portal Migalhas invited Ricardo Tosto and Zanon de Paula Barros to comment on the success of the full-service law firm founded by the two. With 25 years of existence, Leite, Tosto e Barros is one of the most recognized offices in Brazil and Latin America.


In the words of Ricardo Tosto himself, the office was created in an act of insanity. However, over time, new forces have been added to the team of lawyers and jobs have conquered the country’s business class. As reported, Milk, Tosto and Barros is considered the preferred law firm of customers.


Driven by Ricardo Tosto’s expertise in complex and high-value litigation, Leite, Tosto and Barros is one of the big names in Dispute Resolution (Litigation) in Latin America. Awards such as the Chambers Global 2016 and Latin Lawyer 250 – 2016 crown the good-work performed by the office.


One of the factors that Ricardo Tosto points out as fundamental to the success of the office was always focused on customer service. According to him, the law is not only made of theses but of objectivity and results. “The office can not live on theses, businessmen expect from our lawyers results and balance. That is what we propose and that is what we draw,” reiterates Ricardo Tosto.


In 25 years the office saw new names grow within the company and reach the position of owner-owners. Ricardo Tosto cites the case of Dr. Charles Gruenberg. Charles began as a trainee in the office, but his commitment and hard work opened up spaces within Leite, Tosto and Barros. Currently, Dr. Charles Gruenberg composes the membership team.


Within this quarter of a century, the lawyer Ricardo Tosto recalls numerous situations of learning and experience for him and his team. According to Ricardo, the close relationship with the entrepreneurs was an important propulsion for the growth of Leite, Tosto and Barros Associados. Among the experiences, Ricardo Tosto recalls the year 2015, in which businessmen sought the office to renegotiate fees due to the delicate economic moment of Brazil.
